I was so excited about this game after playing and loving the original SKATE.
I feel really let down because this isn't really any change from the first one, it feels exactly the same, looks exactly the same and most of the characters are the same. It's almost like a re-make with a couple of little extras and getting charged £40 to play it!
Don't get me wrong this is a brilliant game but... If you have played and completed SKATE 1 then there is no real rush to get this game as there is very little change, and the security guys are just plain annoying, they run too fast and theyre hard to dodge. There are some major issues with the get off your board and walk around too. When tony hawks first brought this into their game they did it perfectly, your character could run freely and smoothly around, but on Skate 2 it's like waiting for paint to dry! takes about ten seconds just to turn around to walk the other way, it is so sketchy it's unbelievable.
Basically it would have just been nice if they had made some bonus levels and stuff rather than it just been in one HUGE city, takes forever to learn your way round and is also borin gas hell travelling, much easier to use the map and skip to places but then you never learn your way around!
